A Love Supreme presents Children of Zeus (UK) + Allysha Joy + Desmond Cheese
Hailing from Manchester, the sound of “future classic soul for sophisticated hoodrats” is heading down under to bump their brand of fly Lo-fi dusty street soul for your ears and your minds. ‘Children Of Zeus’ will lead you through their blend of hip-hop, jazz, and R&B, with a quintessentially British kick. They have been gradually making waves since appearing together in 2016 and with the release of their debut LP ’Travel Light’ last year the world is standing up to take notice of the prowess of these two Mancunians.
The duo consisting of Konny Kon and Tyler Daley make up the project that is Children of Zeus. Prior to this project, Konny Kon was most recognised for his work as a DJ, beatmaker and MC in ‘Broke’n’English’ alongside fellow Manchester natives, DRS and Strategy. Tyler Daley (also known as Hoodman) came up as a respected MC and as word spread of his abilities he lent his vocals and writing credits to the likes of Goldie, LSB, Soul II Soul‘s Caron Wheeler, Lenzman, Lisa Mafia, Bugsy Malone. The combination of the two has led to a strong flavour of gritted soul described no better than themselves:
“We make classic soul for Hip Hop heads. There’s no lovey dovey dancing over polished R&B involved. It’s soul music with samples, or something we’ve played with a lot of bass, or some dusty sounding breaks involved. Some of the tracks are straight Hip Hop, but it’s all pretty chill”
This is soul music for listeners, bluntheads, fly ladies and prisoners. Don’t miss your chance to see them for the first time in the country.
Making the trip up from Melbourne will also be the ever captivating Allysha Joy. Although best known for her part in the 30/70 collective, Allysha released a solo LP in September and has stepped up to further challenge her expression with this dynamic and raw project that blends jazz, soul and RnB in a very real and moving experience. Her steady groove, husky vocal tone and unique style moves and guides you through every phrase and melody as she plays.
Local legends, Desmond Cheese and the Green Chimney DJ’s Samstosurr and Rohan the Intern will be on deck to warm up and heat up the party from the start to the end.
